The BDA British Deaf Association (BDA) was formed in Leeds as The British Deaf and Dumb Association (BDDA) on 24th July 1890. The BDDA removed the world “Dumb” from its title in 1971 to become the BDA.  At this time it was still an entirely voluntary body, but in the following year, the newly-styled BDA appointed its first salaried General Secretary

The BDA aims to develop pride, identity and awareness of the rights and responsibilities of deaf people. The BDA wants to see a society where Sign Language users have the same rights, responsibilities, opportunities and quality of life as everyone else. They also work to gain the right for all Deaf children to receive bilingual education, using BSL and English, and the right to quality and choice in education.
